I have eaten at Hunan's since 1979. I am a creature of habit and inclined to have the same dish over and over. As I have grown older I eat less spicy food. Hence I am not a good source for the entire menu. But I very much enjoy what they

Tasteless General Tsaos. How can you people say it's the best? Have you even tried Chinese food east of Denver? The worst carryout in the DC area could produce a more flavorful General Tsaos.

I've been going to Hunan for decades and it's never disappointed. The General Tso's chicken is extraordinarily good -- I've never tasted better. Hunan lamb is superb. In fact, there's nothing on the menu (and I've tried a lot of it over the years!) that I wouldn't recommend highly. I even had Peking Duck - well worth planning ahead for.

In the heart of downtown, enjoy great Chinese food. Variety, quality and great prices. Parking is always a problem downtown, but you can enjoy a great walk after dinner, or take a lunch time stroll along the river.

A little annoying to find as the address is misleading. You have to enter the restuarant from Park around back. Once I found my way in, I noticed it was dead. There was only one other couple in the restuarant, yet they sat me at the the next table over. That struck me as odd, but that said, the service was quick and hospitable. They got me seated and brought over some green tea right away. They took my order quickly and made a few recommendations. My appetizer was delicious and came within about 10 minutes. Right as I finished (I took my time reading and they paid attention) they brought out my main course. The main dish was excellent and even though there was quite a bit on my plate, I wanted more. When the check came I was somewhat surprised at how inexpensive it was. $16.95 for everything. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone and am looking forward to trying out other items on the menu next time I'm back in town.

Pros: good food, cheap price, good service

Cons: confusing location

Very good food. No batter fried tasteless stuff here. The best General Tso chicken ever. Hunan Lamb was great. Can't wait to go back. Good service and a warm atmosphere. Ranks with the best of Marco Polo.

Pros: Quiet, no plastic, unique tastes.

Cons: none

It's not that the food is exceptional. It IS good, don't get me wrong. The sesame shrimp and the shrimp in cream sauce and the dry sauteed string beans are the best. I think I like the atmosphere, and the fact that they can acconidate large groups in a heartbeat. The service is prompt and I like the location. I will be back again and again.

We find Hunans to be an exceptional Restaurant. We have been going for almost 18 years now (Holidays, birthdays etc.) and find the chef's to be so consistant. We always order the same menu items; Pot stickers, 10 ingredient fried rice, Lovers shrimp, General Tso's chicken and Dried Sauteed string beans. Everything is always excellent, the shrimp is cooked to perfection and the General Tso's chicken is so good it's hard to stop when you're full! (AND, it's not breaded) You won't regret going and you will keep going back!

This is one of those places you get what you pay for. Order anything other than the "Chef's Specialties" (which are in the $11-$13 range) and you might be disappointed.

The General Tso's is an exquisite break from the normal, batter-coated versions. These mouthwatering chunks of (non-breaded) chicken thigh meat are served with crisp-tender broccoli spears.

The other show-stopper is the sesame shrimp. These shrimps are somehow are crispy at the bite, but soften into a creamy inside. They are also not batter fried. They come seasoned with a light clear honey flavored sauce, sesame seeds, and hot bird chiles.

Steer clear of greasy potstickers, unappetizing appetizer sampler, and most other dishes that are cheaper on the menu.

But go for the sesame shrimp and general tso's chicken and see if it isn't the best you've ever had.

Pros: signature dishes good

Nostalgic emanations. Every other table seemed to be waxing nostalgic with statements like "I've been coming here for 15 years", etc. Perhaps their age has affected their tastebuds. With the exception of the hot & sour soup I've never tasted such bland chinese food. The cashew chicken was inedible, the chicken gristly and unappealing. The chow mein couldn't be revived under any circumstance. Quite a disappointment after following the CitySearch recommendations of their "regulars".

I was in a pinch and needed to feed 80 people. These guys were ready and produced the food in a half hour at $4 per head. Thank you!

The food is excellent, and an excellent value: there are $13 dishes here that taste as good as anything you can find in Portland. Be sure to order from the "Hunan Specialities" list for the best experience.

Human has the ambience you would expect from a nice Chinese restaurant. It's definitely not a spectacular place for a date, but good for kids and large groups.

Despite the fact that all the staff I spoke to were all from Taiwan, this little gem of a botique chinese restaurant prepared notably authentic Hunan dishes. Flavorful meats and tongue tickling spices, hot to your liking, sets this joint apart from the rest.

Are you tired of a lot of the pretensious and overpriced Chinese places that exist on the North side? Cross Burnside, my friends, and find out what so many downtown lunch goers already knew: Hunan is Excellent! Take a trip through the funky Morgan's Alley and up the stares, but do take a moment as the gracious server guides you to your table to check out the aquarium of tropical fish. Very subdued service belies their attentiveness. Wonderful hot green tea reaches your table (complimentary, of course). Oh, and that food. Some of the best seafood chinese in this city. The chicken is supreme, and picking any one (or any ten, for that matter) favorite dish would be futile (though chicken with asparagus is a personal favorite). Trust me on this one, you will not regret it!

I've been to Hunan many times and have taken relatives and friends from out of town and have always had a good meal and good overall experience. All dishes have been exceptionally tasty. We are talking hot and spicy with plenty of flavor. The dishes are basic old school Chinese. Nothing trendy, but solid execution. I recommend the sesame chicken chef's specialty as well as the sauteed green beans. The service is prompt and efficient and they know what they are doing. Rarely crowded but usually busy. One of my favorite restaurants in Portland.

After spending 8 months in China, I have not found any Chinese restaurants that could compre. I personally prefer Chinese-Style to American-Chinese Style of cooking. However, the Hot and Sour Soup and the Potstickers are some of the best!

My husband and I have been searching for great Chinese food since moving here in May. Hunan is the place! The thinly-sliced sweet sesamie chicken is my new fave. and he loves the Kung Pao chicken. The hot and sour soup is wonderful! Perfect consistancy and flavor.

This is not your Chinese/American fare. You won't find the typical bland crap of many 'Chinese' restaurants. This food is hunan style which means many dishes some would consider too hot for the American palate. I've never brought anyone here who didn't rave on the food; though kids probably won't like it. Sometimes you get crusties on the tea pot, wall, silverware, booth, etc. I think they replaced their dishwasher/cleaning crew since. The menu selection is huge - try wonton in hot oil for an appetizer. Also, get a takeout menu.

Pros: Moderately priced, Take out!, Spicey hot dishes

Cons: Cleanliness hit/miss, Language barrier, Downtown parking
